Readers are thus given insights into Earth’s atmospheric chemistry, probable climate change and solar-induced electronics disruption.

In “Grand Phases On The Sun: The case for a mechanism responsible for extended solar minima and maxima” (published by Trafford Publishing), author Steven Haywood Yaskell explains distinguished solar scientist Cornelis de Jager’s papers concerning whether or not the solar maximum for the solar cycle will be very strong or very weak. “Is there yet another repeatable cycle in the sun that forewarns us of ‘space weather?’” he asks.

“Grand Phases On The Sun” describes an ongoing and ever-developing case whereby the sun has undergone a chaotic internally-driven episode. To do this, the book displays reputable solar science on improved prediction for deep solar minima and maxima occurrences. Readers are thus given insights into Earth’s atmospheric chemistry, probable climate change and solar-induced electronics disruption.

An excerpt from the book:

“We speak now about Navier-Stokes equations, Babcock-Leighton models, MHD, and the current-making involved in the solar dynamo—and then bring in Mr. (and Mrs.) Maunder once again. For what they discovered so long ago (in 1903) regarding ‘butterfly diagrams’ as discrete but anomalous entities… took until just recently to more-or-less lay out flat on the laboratory table… This is based on observation and the math, naturally, yet by no means does it represent ‘the final word.’”
